The 2009 TSFA season was the 11th regular season of the Texas Sixman Football League.[1]

There was little shake-up in the team roster for 2008. A veteran team changed ownership and name again, another longtime veteran returned and two rookies joined the mix. That left the TSFA with 13 teams again and the post season ended with the 4th straight all-star game. 2009 also marked the first ever TSFA night games with the Epler Cup and All-Star games being played under the lights at The Winston School.

Teams[edit]

The Rhinos continued as the longest tenured organization in the TSFA coming back for their tenth season. The Bandits, Longhorns and Wolverines entered their ninth years of competition. The Bucs returned for their eighth season after a year hiatus. The Wrecking Crew returned for their fifth season. The Panthers returned for a fourth season of play. The Bulldawgs and Phoenix returned for their third seasons. The Revolution entered into their second season of play. The Ruff Ryders again changed ownership hands this time coming in as the Renegades. The Cowboys entered for their first season and the Outlawz was revived for their first season of play.

The Northern Conference consisted of the Bandits, Bucs, Longhorns, Outlawz, Panthers, Phoenix and Revolution. The Southern Conference consisted of the Bulldawgs, Cowboys, Renegades, Rhinos, Wolverines and Wrecking Crew.

Epler Cup XI Summary[edit]

The first ever TSFA night game was a classic, both teams made the league proud with the level of commitment, determination and sportsmanship with which both teams exhibited before, during and after this memorable championship game. Coach Fred Garcia and his Outlaw football team, along with a few hundred fans, attacked first. The Outlaw defense created turnovers and scored the first points of the game. Shawn Battles and his Renegade football team, along with a few hundred of their fans struck back and tied the score 6 all. The scoring exchange continued as both teams managed to each get 6 points on the board, for their respective teams, with only 45 seconds on the clock and halftime on the brink. The Renegades would score the final 6 points of the half with no time on the clock. Halftime would arrive with both teams tied.

The second half saw a continuation of the first half with hard aggressive hits and big play after big play on both sides of the ball. #9 Henry Booth aka Silk would make smart decisions while tucking the ball and running when nothing was open down field. Silk played with a high level of energy and leadership that would turn out to be unmatched. #66 Leo Reyes also had some timely catches as #15 Manuel Garcia found him on two consecutive plays open and earning positive yards as they drove towards their endzone with both teams continuing to match the other score after score.

The 4th quarter arrive and the boxing match would continue with big offensive and defensive plays. The end of the 4th quarter would arrive and with seconds on the clock and a tie score, Outlawz QB - Manuel Garcia would connect with #21 Zachary Young on a deep pass that would place the Outlawz inside the 5 yard line. The Outlawz would find themselves rushing downfield with the clock running, as they were out of timeouts, and a dramatic misque would result in OVERTIME!

The Renegade defense was determined not to let the Outlawz score, led by South Defensive Player of the Year Oscar Valdez and South Defensive Player of the Year Runner-up Eric Trinidad the Renegade defense caused a turnover by an Outlaw RB. Eric Trinidad aka Turtle, forced the turnover.

The Renegades would take possession as #32 Eric Martinez would not be denied the endzone. The Renegades would proceed to score and secure the Victory and earn The Epler Cup XI Championship. The final score 38 - 32 (OT).

Henry Booth was a unanimous selection as Epler Cup XI MVP.
